LB Ottonie von Roeder | WiSe 2018/19

Lehrbeauftragter WiSe 18/’19
Visiting Lecturer Winter Semester 2018/19


Ottonie von Roeder is a designer working in the field of critical and social design, design research and design education. In her work, she applies speculation and playfulness to understand and question existing cultural, societal and political systems and structures. In order to trigger a wider discourse and to communicate her concepts, she uses installations, objects, performance, video, graphics and photography as a media.

She was trained as a designer in Switzerland, Germany, Israel and the Netherlands where she graduated in 2017 from the Social Design master’s course at the Design Academy Eindhoven. In 2017 she was nominated for the Gijs Bakker Award with her project Post Labouratory and in 2018 she won the Dutch Design Awards in the category Service & Systems  with Cow&Co.

Currently, Ottonie is based in Leipzig, working in different collaborations in Germany and abroad. Her work Post Labouratory  is on show in the „unmaking school“ of the 4th Istanbul Design Biennial 2018.
Ottonie will be Visiting Lecturer for the New Grounds project of Design & Social Context that runs in the Winter Semester of 2018/19.
